...
and it makes me feel quite small
But you're the one I love the most of all

This is literally the FIRST thing that came to my mind when i found out that the current challenge is about the author of this song. If i didn't made this shot, i really doubt i would have shot anything else for this challenge.

Shot on the streets of Skopje, at one of the busiest pedestrian crossing in the city. There are busy bus stops near by, and the time of day was arround 5pm (people coming home from work). Telephoto focal length of 200mm (crop sensor) was used to compress the perspective. Custom MC (monochrome) settings to produce the in-camera JPEG with higher contrast.

This was my highest score (9) for the challenge. I LOVE the sense of scale, DOF, monochrome and it fits so well with the song. Great work.

This finished much higher in my ranking. I thought it conveyed the message well.

Nice use of depth of field to isolate a focal point. I can see the lyrics in your shot.
